Hi i am new and need some help..
I have a 20 year old beech tree that my friend who died left me.
my dog attacked it for some reason last year and broke off about 4 branches..
well the tree hasnt gotten in leaves this year at all. and most of the tree is brittle and dead the limbs snap off if you bend them even a tiny bit..
except for about 3 small ones the are pliable and don't break.
the soil was wet very wetbecause the screens got clogged and today i had to take the tree out and put some sand into the soil and clean the screens out..
well the roots most of them are alive there were hundreds of tiny feeder roots growing everywhere they were white and the main roots seemed alive.
I fixed the soil by adding some sand and a bit of soil i have in my back yard.. that is good plus a tiny bit of seed starter soil.. I don't know if any of this is any good.
I know little about trees
but that tree was doing great until my lovely dog did that.
it is a beech tree.
please help .
